Pec implants, or pectoral implants, are the ideal solution for people who are not able to achieve their desired chest contour with exercise and weight training alone. Pec implants, which are placed behind the pectoralis major muscle, can create a natural-looking upper and lower chest fullness, depending on the desired look. These implants are made of medical grade silicone and are highly customizable.
Pec implants can be placed through an axillary (armpit) incision to avoid placing scars on the chest. For patients with gynecomastia, it is very common to combine pec implant surgery with gynecomastia reduction (male breast reduction) surgery all in one procedure for maximal chest contour correction.
After having this outpatient surgery, the required downtime is minimal, and you can return to daily activities within a few days. The length of restriction from vigorous workouts is determined by your surgeon.
